RNLAF no. 334 Transport Squadron, C-47, F-27 Troopship, Gulfstream
No.334 Squadron of the Royal Netherlands Air Force has a long history. That history is more or less given with this set. We go from the C-47 Skytrain via our own Fokker F-27 Troopship to the jet era with the Gulfstream.

Over the years we get more and more opportunities to complete our Dutch model fleet (even in multiple scales) certainly also thanks to Dutch Decal, only over the years they also disappear, unfortunately. You should therefore not be surprised if, for example, that you have pay 50.00 euros for an Airfix F-27. Hoping for re-issues from anyone and preferably with new-tools!
With this set you can not build all versions that are drawn on the manual, but at least 1 of each type where the F-27-100 United Nations is also a type can be build. Maybe with the help of the other Dutch Decal sets on roundels and letters there will be more possible.
Thanks to Dutch Decal for making it available for review.
